The membership is made up of school board members from the following districts: Dansville, East Lansing, Haslett, Holt, Lansing, Leslie, Mason, Okemos, Stockbridge, Waverly, Webberville, and Williamston, along with Ingham Intermediate School District. The superintendents of each district are also members.


The goal of ISOA is to provide constructive assistance to school board members. This includes promoting governmental action of benefit to our students and schools, increasing interest and knowledge of schools among the residents in our community, developing effective and informed school board members, and encouraging collaboration and sharing resources among member schools.

Board of Directors

ISOA has an executive board, which is comprised of one board representative from each of the local school districts, the intermediate school district,  and a representative from the superintendents' roundtable.

The executive board is responsible for planning the program for the association. ISOA is funded through a three percent refund of dues paid by the member boards to MASB. The activities of ISOA are facilitated by the staff of Ingham Intermediate School District.


In addition to the regular executive board meetings, where a host of topics are discussed, during election years ISOA facilitates the distribution of legislative candidate positions on issues of importance to the K-12 community. In addition, the board periodically holds forums of interest to the general membership.
